Take a leisurely tour of the city sights and rural beauty spots of Poland with cheap car hire from National Car Rental.
With important agricultural, industrial and service sectors, Poland welcomes many business visitors, mostly to the capital, Warsaw, or to Krakow, Gdansk and other industrial areas. However, it isn't only commercial travellers who take advantage of National Car Rental's cheap car hire deals, as there's also plenty for holidaymakers to do.
Things to See and Do in Poland
Poland is a country of contrasts, with mountains, forests and isolated villages juxtaposed with vibrant cities, bristling with arts, gourmet cuisine and buzzing nightlife. It's dotted with historic sites, medieval buildings and innovative modern architecture. With National's cheap car hire, you can soak up the timeless atmosphere of Krakow's Old Town, which is one of UNESCO's World Heritage Sites, but also see the northern beach town of Swinoujscie, with its quaint windmill, soft sandy shore and fresh, local food that you'll miss when you leave.
A Holiday by Car in Poland
In very little time, you can enjoy a diverse vacation, for example, making gingerbread using vintage machinery at Torun's Live Museum of Gingerbread, before heading out of Poland's centre to check out Krakow's museums or the monuments at Lublin. Car rental gives you the freedom to plan activities in different areas without worrying about the language barrier, and you can book online for our best prices, leaving more cash in your pocket. Try to time your visit to include one of Poland's many festivals, such as Krakow's Film Festival or the Wianki Midsummer Festival, which features rafts and fireworks, or the festivals dedicated to Chopin or jazz music. There's sure to be one to suit you.
Famous Road Trips to Take in Poland
Although Poland is not synonymous with beach holidays, one of the most popular driving routes is along its Balkan coastal road, from Kołobrzeg to the village of Lazy. This road runs through forest more often than within sight of the sea, but there are frequent parking areas from where you can nip down to the sheltered coves and wide open, silvery tracts. But you don't need to hug the coast to make the most of your National car hire; the route from Gdansk to Krakow, via Torun and Warsaw, boasts a wealth of historically important sites and beautiful architecture, such as Gdansk's Great Mill or Warsaw's Museum of the Palace of King Jan III.
